Each webinar features a presentation by an award-winning author with discussion on how to incorporate multicultural literature into the classroom. Be sure to join the conversation with our webinar hashtag #ReadingAcrossCultures. All sessions are free and open to the public. All times listed refer to Eastern Standard Time (EST).
